OMNI Block High R Block
Omni Block - Exceptional Thermal And Sound Performance
Skyline Brick has entered into a partnership with OMNI Block to bring you the cutting edge in Thermal and Sound performance for Concrete Masonry. And we do it with Recycled Content manufactured in Bladensburg MD to meet Regional Material requirements!
OMNI BLOCK has a patented design to prevent thermal bridging and the transfer of heat and cold through the masonry unit in a single-wythe design. While OMNI Block may be new to the mid-Atlantic, it has been used in the Southwest US for years since it was developed in Arizona.
Thermal Performance: OMNI vs Normal Weight CMU
OMNI trounces Normal CMU with a whopping 19.5 R Value on an 8" 105 and 28 R on a 12" block vs. 3.4 for Normal weight with polyurethane foamed in place. OMNI Block's estimated 8" wall system thermal performance value including thermal mass concepts, thermal lag and wall tightness is commonly set at R-25. Also, ASHRAE IES 90.1 calculations derive an R-24.6 value.
